Elliott Sharp’s Vivarium is a program of new and recent works partially drawn from his new album, Tranzience, on New World Records. Drawing upon the talents of top new music ensembles JACK Quartet and New Thread Quartet, Vivarium places Sharpe’s works in new contexts.

The program features “Tranzience” performed by JACK Quartet, “Approaching The Arches of Corti” performed by New Thread saxophone quartet; “Homage Leroy Jenkins” performed by Jenny Lin, Rachel Golub, and Joshua Rubin; and “The Hidden Variable” for electro-acoustic guitar performed by Elliott Sharp. The evening will conclude with the the world premiere of “Vivarium,” a graphic score by Sharp that will be performed by all of the musicians taking part in the other pieces.

Composer and multi-instrumentalist Elliott Sharp is the leader of such projects as SysOrk, Orchestra Carbon and Tectonics, and Terraplane. Recipient of the Berlin Prize for 2015 and a Guggenheim Fellowship winner for 2014, Sharp has composed for Ensemble Modern, RadioSinfonie Frankfurt, and Arditti Quartet. A contributor to Hilary Hahn’s Grammy-winning album In 27 Pieces, Sharp has been featured at New Music Stockholm, Donaueschingen, Darmstadt, Tomorrow Shenzhen, and Au Printemps festivals. His opera Port Bou premiered in the United States at Issue Project Room October 2014 and in Berlin at Konzerthaus in April 2015. In 2010, Sharp created About Us, a sci-fi opera for all-teenage performers at the Bayerische Staatsoper. His work is the subject of the documentary “Doing The Don’t” and he has been featured on NPR’s All Things Considered.
